Lakeville Student Dies In Crash On Slush-Covered Road
LAKEVILLE (AP) - A Minnesota high school student has died in a two-vehicle crash on a slushy road.
That brings the number of people killed in weather-related crashes to five since a snowstorm swept into Minnesota on Monday.
Lakeville police say the 17-year-old was a student at Lakeville North High School. She was driving her Pontiac Grand Prix when she lost control on a slush-covered road, slid sideways and collided with a GMC Acadia.
The crash happened at 9:45 a.m. Wednesday a quarter-mile north of the school.
The driver and passenger in the other vehicle had minor injuries. Police did not release the victim's name.
Heavy snow and ice has contributed to hundreds of traffic accidents around Minnesota.
